Hi.
I have copied a complete cpmove tar.gz from server A and put it in the /home directory of server B. I made a new account for it and used the same username and password that belongs to the original cpanel account.
When i run the cpmove backup function it starts to unpack and then says it has failed because the password already exsists.

What am i doing wrong?

Don't create the empty account on the new server. Just restore the backup file. Restoring the backup file will also create the account.

Ok thanks. That worked.

The problem i have now is that it copied over the original domain name that points to the original domain. When i renamed to the new server and click on it i get an index of/ page, how do i overcome this?

Lol forget that.
Some of the files haven't carried over including the database.
